The following were shot at Santa Barbara by my step-dad, TC Ury with an old Speed Graphic and AGFA 4x5 film. A couple of them are included in the book "American Sports Car Racing in the 1950s"
Apologies to anyone out there on dialup...
Ken Miles' MG Special
Another shot of the Miles Special
I don't know why, but this is my favorite shot from his collection. I believe it's the shot that made me want to photograph racing cars myself.

But not the Grand Prix?

I had to get the full info on this picture from Mr.Nye himself. This is picture is in my collection, so copyright is with The Supercharged Collection. It's Giulio Borsari in the fuel-injected Ferrari 156/63 at Silverstone in 1963. Taken from the original 2 and a quarter inch square negative, remember those??

I don't think it had the tacked-on deflector on the top of the windscreen in June.

Is the only difference in this Ferrari between the Grand Prix and the International Trophy the fact that the number 10 was in a white roundel in May?
Or are there other subtle things that we plebs don't spot?

The first is Lucien Bianchi's Maserati 151 in 1962. The second is obviously Roger Penske in 1963.
The picture of Graham Hill in Ferrari number 10 is from 1964.
The pictures of the Breadvan Ferrari are from the 1962.
The pictures of the GTOs are from 1962. As stated, Surtees is number 74, Parkes' winner is 73. I am not sure about number 72, but it must be Piper or Davis.
I think that the Ferrari number 6 is Bandini's 330LM in 1963

Everyone, fantastic photos! Keep them coming!
Posted 02 November 2001 - 20:50
Count me in if the thread takes off. Most of my personal F1 pics are already on FORIX but I am sure I could find some paddock shots that have not been seen.
Maybe even shots from other catagories? I would LOVE to see some personal photos from the 1976 & 77 Shellsport series or the 1978-79 AFX or F5000!
Posted 03 November 2001 - 16:49
1972 British GP at Brands Hatch and Niki Lauda (driving for March) checks his mount for 1973!
Guy Ewwards brakes his F5000 Lola T330 for Druids during practice for the 1973 Race of Champions at Brands.
1974 Race of Champions at Brands and Jacky Ickx brings his Lotus 72E back into the paddock after practice.
Just after the Ickx picture and Denny Hulme returns in the McLaren M23 (without his helmet).
I'll see how many other members contribute to this thread and maybe post a few more in December?

Thanks Twinny for resurrecting this long forgotten thread.. maybe a memory jogger for Jaxs, Udo K., Frank de Jong and Rob G?
As I said 3 years ago..Come on guys, where are all your hidden gems??

I am not a professional photographer, so copyrighting my photos does not bother me. If anyone thinks that my pics are good enough to use elsewhere I am delighted, and more that happy for that to happen.
One funny occurrance regarding copyright etc.. check these links..
These are two of my photos.. used on the official BRDC website without my knowledge .
I assume they 'lifted' them from FORIX?
I hate watermarks and other things spoiling images , but I do understand the reasons why some people use them .

You could not see Barry Boor's pics because he'd removed 'em! Now they are back.. OK

Can anyone explain why some people can see posted photos and others can't? And what to do about it?
I've looked at this thread on two different machines today, and in both Barry Boor's and Twinny's posts, all I get are those annoying little boxes with Xs in the middle. I can see all the other shots posted so far.
I have never had a problem seeing any of Twinny's work

Roger Hill I think, mechanic with Tyrrell from 1968 through to 1989..

Here's Jackie Stewart's Tyrrell at the 1970 USGP. Can anyone identify the mechanic driving the Car? I think his name might be Roger?
Here is another pic of him (in the car) at the 1973 International Troply.
This thread just gets better and better

Well, I've spent an hour or two in memory pitlane this evening scanning these black & white negatives from practice at Zolder 1975. Great drivers, some long gone but never forgotten. Enjoy!
